Ingredients

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 shallots, minced
1 cup vodka
1 cup chicken stock
1 can crushed tomatoes (32 ounces)
Coarse salt and pepper
16 ounces of pasta, I recommend penne rigate or angel hair
½ cup heavy cream
20 leaves fresh basil, shredded or torn


Heat large skillet over moderate heat.


Add oil, butter, garlic, and shallots.


Gently sauté shallots for 3-5 minutes to develop their sweetness.


Add vodka to the pan.


Reduce vodka by half, this will take 2-3 minutes.


Add chicken stock, tomatoes.


Bring sauce to a bubble and reduce heat to simmer.


Season with salt and pepper.


Add cream when sauce is done simmering.


Mix with pasta and serve.


Serve with crusty bread

I love this recipe, I put it over angel hair pasta and serve it with a parmesan crusted chicken breast

A dash of local for every season
